Romance in New York

Pictured here is a street scene on my way to last night’s Inner Circle dinner – New York City Hall’s equivalent to the White House Correspondents Dinner. Journalists poked fun at Mayor de Blasio all night, and he responded by good-naturedly poking fun at himself. 

One sketch, modeled after “The Honeymooners,” ended with him kissing his wife Chirlane and proclaiming, “Baby, you’re the greatest!” It was nearly midnight – and the drunk, boisterous, black-tie crown reacted with an audible, unaffected sigh.
